Venues are not importing from Facebook
Testing for conflicts seems involved and risky.
Here is another example of a venue that did not get imported with the feed. There are many:
The original event is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/161440937950575
How it is imported is here, sans any information about venue:
Does this occur when they event organizer uses a named venue that doesn’t appear in our venue library?
I just went through creating a WP-staging site, activated the twenty-sixteen template, disabled all plug ins that were not associated with the event calendar and cleared my browser cache. Plus I ran the associated import feed in the Event Aggregator. I also made sure the venue appears in the venue library. I then returned to an example event where the venue is not importing — and the venue still does not import.
Original event: https://www.facebook.com/events/161440937950575

Thanks for your help.
Please have it import the venue name. If the venue name is obvious to all residents like the “State Capitol” or the “Community Center” or “Capitol Theater”, no address is required for these. But the name is! These types of venues people will tend not to enter addresses because everyone knows where they are. Can you gather all the info that is entered?
Also, there are some events at private residences where the addresses will be provided on registration. The organizers wants their venue of Private Residence: Address to Be Provided to get through to the calendar.
That’s an awesome idea! I’m afraid it’s a little tougher to get the import as described but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great idea for a feature request — I can actually see how that would make well known events or ones with private addresses for accessible for the imports.
